German Studies from a German–French Perspective

Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) – 2 field degree program - Major Field


German Studies looks at more than what you know from German at school. The research content of German Studies includes the rules of language and communication, structures of literature and their cultural contexts, variations and developments over the course of linguistic and literary history, and of course the theories and methods with which one can analyze this.

For German Studies, you must be willing to read intensively, analyze language and literature, discuss this and formulate statements precisely. As well as good language skills, you need an enthusiasm for language and literature.

In addition to the typical German Studies topics, on the ‘German Studies from a German-French perspective’ degree program you will consider German Studies in France, the focal points of French German Studies in research and how the French see German cultural history. In addition to learning the fundamentals of German studies you will also gain extensive intercultural skills.

Please note:
In the summer semester 2020 and in the winter semester 2020/21 there may be deviations from individual regulations of the admission regulations, selection and entrance examination regulations as well as the study and examination regulations from the Corona Statutes [de].

Disclaimer
The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.
